Freedom Treks Photo Competition

Share your favourite Freedom Treks moment this year for the chance to win £500 off your next holiday

The leisurely pace of a Freedom Treks holiday provides ample opportunity to stop and take photos of the beautiful scenery and interesting sights along the way. Submit your favourite five into our 2022 Photo Competition for the chance to win £500 off your next holiday with us - plus prizes for runners up!

We would love to see your best photos of whatever makes a cycling holiday special to you. Whether it’s time spent with friends, exploring the history and culture of a destination or the cycling itself. Our favourite photos usually include cycling, so this may be something to consider!

For some inspiration, take a look at the previous winners' photos below or view all the 2019 entries on Facebook.

How to Enter

To enter our 2022 Photo Competition, simply email your five best photos to competition@freedomtreks.co.uk, including your name and where each photo was taken.

We highly recommend using a filesharing service such as WeTransfer, Google Drive or Dropbox to submit your photos in the best quality possible, but if you'd prefer sending directly over email then you may need to send each photo individually.

You can enter up to a maximum of five photos - so choose wisely! Photos must be taken in 2022 on a tour booked with Freedom Treks. Don't worry if you're not packing the latest DSLR in your pannier, your smartphone will do just fine.

The closing date for entries is 31 December 2022.

Prizes

The winning photo submitted in 2022, as chosen by our team and customers, will receive £500 off their next Freedom Treks holiday.

As the standard of entries has been so high in past years, this year second place will receive a £100 John Lewis voucher and third place a £50 John Lewis voucher.

Terms & conditions apply, please see below.

The Judging Process

Once all entries have been received at the end of 2022, the Freedom Treks team will choose a shortlist of their favourite photos. Our customers will then have the final say in an online vote.

The winners will be announced by 31 January 2023.
